@JoshZumbrun @PotomacRC Agreed--but this is why I think "independence" has essentially become incoherent. It's never been about isolation--that's the myth. But nor is it true that the Fed is just another arm of Cong or Pres. The middle ground isn't as fun, but more descriptively accurate

@JoshZumbrun @scottlanman @mckonomy Yes, Feb 3 is irrelevant here. We have similar priors that Trump tiring Quarles is unlikely generally, but given how risk averse federal appointees are, small risks have big consequences.
